These elegant candlesticks are made from sterling silver but please note that the stems and bases have been filled which is fairly usual. They are made in a style that was popular in the Georgian period with knopped stems and grooved detail around them and the circular bases.
The sconces are fixed and will accommodate candlesticks measuring up to 1.9cm (¾) in diameter. The bases are covered with brown leatherette. Both sticks are hallmarked for London 1958 with the makers mark of Richard Comyns of Williams Comyns & Sons. Unfortunately, the marks are quite rubbed through polishing and only parts are still visible. Both sticks are in beautiful condition with no dents or bruises and they stand nice and vertical without a wobble.
There are some tiny dints around the outside edges of the bases but these are barely noticeable. Please be aware that, after 62 years, there will be some fine surface abrasions but there are no deep scratches. The leatherette on the bases is secure with no scuffing or staining.
